Hello all,
Does anyone know of a coil over shock that is a direct replacement for the factory rear shocks on a 70 Mach? I am looking to make the rear ride height ajustable, without having to weld in a shock mounting bar between the frame rails.
Thanks, John

I have see airsocks push right thru the floor on a car with leaf springs, over time. If you remove the springs & put coil overs in there location it would be no time & the rear would be on the ground.

Thanks guys,
I guess a little custom work is in order.

Using the shocks to hold up the rear is a bad idea. Besides screwing up the center of gravity and placing an undue strain on the shock mounts, it also unloads the rear springs (leading to clutch chatter and wheel hop).
